Dead Cells Players on PC Can Now Revert Back to a Previous Build With Free “Legacy Update”

Motion Twin and Evil Empire have pushed a new update to the PC version of their roguelike action game, Dead Cells.

PC players will find that they have access to what is known as the “Legacy Update,” which allows players on Steam to play any version of the Dead Cells that they desire. As the game receives various balances and updates, PC players who enjoyed a particular aspect of a previous build can simply stay in the past and play it before an update came and ruined their experience.

Players are able to travel all the way back the very first Early Access version of the game. However, there are also a few other bonuses included in the form of two new mutations, rebalancing for the 3 least-used weapons and a Santa skin.

“As dedicated as we have been and remain to growing and refining Dead Cells, we’ve heard from select community members mourning the loss of their personal favorite elements from prior builds,” said Joan Blachere, creative director at Evil Empire. “Our goal with the Legacy Update is to help veteran fans rediscover their favorite moments from Dead Cells’ expansive build archive while letting curious newcomers explore what’s led to the version familiar to them. Giving the gift of time travel while still keeping future updates available to everyone is about as close to a Christmas miracle as we can get.”

If you want to know more about Dead Cells, we recently had an interview with the team during PAX West.
